Pathways to Net Zero Emissions for the Mobile Telecom Industry
Date / Time: Wednesday, June 15, 2022, 12:00 p.m New York / 5:00 p.m London

Climate Change is an existential threat to humanity and the time to act is running out. Every sector of the economy, including ICT, needs to aggressively decarbonize to meet the objectives of the Paris Climate Agreement. While the ICT sector has aligned behind a Science-Based pathway to reach Net-Zero emissions, to achieve their goals MNOs need to simultaneously deploy two key strategies: first, switch to renewable electricity to power their networks and second, implement network energy efficiency initiatives. It is projected that by 2027, North America will have the highest 5G penetration at 90%. If 5G is deployed in the same way as previous generations to meet rising traffic demands, the energy consumption of mobile networks will increase dramatically.

Throughout this webinar, we will explore how mobile operators can meet the industry’s aspiration for net-zero carbon emissions, using a holistic approach that reduces their energy footprint and ensures that as much as possible of the energy they do consume comes from low carbon sources.
